Die Unbrauchbarmachung von Protokollen

How to decommoditize a protocol

There are six things you can do:

  • Make it more complex
  • Incompletely specify it
  • Fail to document it
  • Change it rapidly
  • Use encumbered intellectual property
  • Add value (i.e. solve more problems, better performance)

Of these, only the last really makes the software more useful to users.

Nagelgewehre sind gefährlich

Zumindest in den USA, da sich dort die Zahl der mit Verletzungen, die aus der Benutzung eines solchen Gerätes entstanden sind, in Krankenhäuser eingelieferten Patienten von 1991 bis 2005 verdreifacht hat auf 14.800 Verletzte pro Jahr.

According to new statistics that would make Bob Vila cringe, the number of injuries from nail guns has almost doubled since 2001. And researchers say that more and more it is do-it-yourselfers who are feeling the pain.

In fact, the number of weekend carpenters treated each year for nail gun injuries in emergency rooms in U.S. hospitals more than tripled between 1991 and 2005, increasing to about 14,800 per year, according to an analysis by researchers at Duke University Medical Center and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
